of everyone. there's the big race for sure rod brown -- sherrod brown. you'll see them everywhere, positive and negative. the same for the presidential race. those are the predominant ones. the interesting thing, it is amazing. you hear the repetition of those talking points. then you wonder, do people really get any deeper? do they actually investigate or are they merely turning on various channels and. the talking heads? over the weekend i was listening to someone and they said all we are looking for is that sound bite, that one little point. i am off work right now recovering from a health issue, but i'm doing great. my goal in life is for us to be a working population that contributes to a better society, not having a mud race over who can throw the most bmud. we have businesses coming back to ohio and people going back to work, but the ads are increasingly longer and there are more them. you cannot run away. host: thanks for spending time with us and explain the situation in ohio. there's a new york post cartoon this morning with an anger man delivering campaign news. appears a clip fr
to sherrod brown, who says that happens in the brown campaign. i suspect that is happening in many campaigns. there is so much fact checking going on, not just with our organizations, but with others. we have partners in 11 states. there are newspapers and website around the country doing fact checking. there are a lot of eyes out there. >> that suggest, if things are that closely vetted and mauled over before they are said, especially speeches at the conventions, when they come out and repeat things that they know are going to the fact that again, that suggests there is no price. they have concluded that the price is so small that they are willing to -- >> there may be a price, but it is balanced against the fact that it is a tested and the fact of life that moves voters. you do a cost-benefit analysis, like anything in life, the benefits quickly away the costs of yet another column in "the washington post" or the associated press that says there is no money there your saving from ending the war. >> it happens. >> sometimes i am struck by the aggressiveness of the ads, compared to what come

. governor schwarzenegger and brown said we're not going to defend proposition 8 and then they about intervenors. i think the court system is based on these procedures. the court wants to make sure . >> there is a law that says if the president is not going to defend a federal statute, and the attorney general has to write a letter to both houses of congress saying here is why i'm going to take the unusual step of not defending it. they have the right to come in and defend the statute they pass. >> i want to ask you a question. >> we saw all kinds of cases about the rights of detainees in guantanamo bay and how much they have a right to challenge the conditions and how much the court entertain them. the supreme court seems to take no interest in these cases and is content to let them work out the limitations. veryen though they're controversial, at the cases are being well addressed by very well expected -- well-respected courts. as a historical matter, things are settling down. after 9/11 just like any crisis, there is a reaction by government. the government puts things in place qu

moves forward. the impact could be just as significant as the well mound brown vs. board of education, a landmark supreme court case in which the court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white student was unconstitutional. some seemed to think that one of the candidates, and i won't name which one, stands for turning back clock in many ways. essentially, minority voter participation will play an integral role in picking the winner of this year's presidential election. the town hall meeting tonight will strategically discussed the who and why minority voter participation and awareness can bring to the racial and ethnic minorities. the moderator for tonight's meeting is none other than roland martin you have seen him on cnn and you have heard him on the radio. he is a national award winning journalist and an author, a commentator where he has " washington watch." and he is a cnn analysis -- cnn analyst appearing on many shows. without further ado, i get your moderator, mr. roland martin.
